With the increasing need to be ever connected to the internet, a full-fibre connection based broadband is essential to your internet experience. Full-fibre based broadband is the new generation of broadband – faster, more reliable and it uses a revolutionary technology not seen in the UK before.

eight times faster than ‘superfast’

New internet service providers like toob are popping up all over the country, and thanks to them, 37% of the UK can now access this network of faster, more reliable than ever before broadband. What an incredible amount compared to the 10% in 2019. There has never been a better time to get ahead of the crowd and upgrade yours.

With speeds of up to 900 megabits per second (Mbps), toob’s full-fibre is eight times faster than its ‘superfast’ high street rival, which starts at just 54 Mbps. We also offer up to 18x faster speeds for download and 90x faster for upload compared to the average fibre broadband connection.

In 2021, we started to roll out our full-fibre network beyond Southampton. Over the next few years, our network will expand to Aldershot, Ash, Camberley, Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh, Farnborough, Frimley, Frimley Green, Guildford, Mytchett, West Byfleet and Woking. You can view the areas we are expanding into here and register your interest in our services.

no more “who’s hogging the wi-fi?”

The beauty of toob’s wi-fi is that there is no digital gap. The whole family can connect their many devices and enjoy the same experience. There are no usage restrictions or the need to compete for bandwidth. Squabbling among yourselves over who’s taken over the wi-fi connection is a thing of the past.

Whether you have a teenage son that wants to play Fortnite with his friends, a young daughter obsessed with watching unboxing videos on YouTube or a mum and dad that want to watch programmes religiously on Netflix to unwind from their busy day – our broadband is right for you.

It no longer matters if you’re on a tablet, smartphone, laptop or console. You can enjoy smooth and steady web browsing no matter how many people are using one connection.

smart homes need smarter broadband speeds

One of the biggest home trends over the last few years has been ‘smart’ products for the home. This is set to continue at an unprecedented rate and smart products are now more affordable and accessible than ever before.

Whether it’s an energy meter or a lightbulb, home security or products synced with the internet of things, there’s hardly an object in your home that you can’t upgrade to a smart version now. These types of devices not only improve the comfort of your home, but can really improve the impact on the environment your home has. Not to mention helping grow that piggy bank of yours with the pennies you’ll save daily.

Your home is slowly becoming more and more digital and you need a solid foundation to support that. That’s where toob come in, our full-fibre broadband will never buckle under the strain of multiple smart devices and you’ll never be left in the dark.

gamers, we got you

Playing games online is one of the most bandwidth-intensive online activities. The type of broadband required for effective gaming will be significantly different from the broadband for households that simply browse the web.

With the most popular games to play now being online – CoD veterans we’re looking at you – your broadband can mean the difference between life and death, literally.

If your broadband speed is slow, it will be a terrible gaming experience and you’ll probably get taken out pretty quickly. And no one wants to ruin their high streak, right? With toob, suffering a defeat at the hands of a jittery broadband connection is a thing of the past.

Got better things to do than spending hours waiting for the latest game releases to download? Come and join toob where every Mbps counts. With our package offering symmetrical speeds of 900 Mbps, you can download a 50GB PS5 game in as little as 7 minutes and 57 seconds.

And that means you’ll be playing the game quicker than the time it took setting up your console.

homeworking that really works

With a third of employers saying employee productivity levels have been boosted by working from home since the COVID-19 pandemic, flexible working looks like it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Households with standard fibre broadband could be sharing a cable box with up to 3,000 other households. Even if just half of these have residents working from home at the same time as you, your broadband speed is sure to be lacking in speed.

With toob’s full-fibre broadband, the connection is yours and only yours.

toob’s full-fibre broadband could be the difference between you saying “is everyone able to see my screen?” at the start of every Zoom meeting you have and having a crystal clear connection where everyone sees you in full HD. But not the sweatpants you’re still wearing on your bottom half after a year and a half of working from home.
